About AECOM’s Industry Division and its Architecture Practice:
As part of AECOM’s Resources and Industry business, the Industry division is a multi-disciplinary consultancy focusing on the design of innovative industrial projects worldwide, which incorporate processes at the cutting edge of emergent technology.

Clients include Amazon, BMW, DHL, GE, Jaguar Land Rover, Manchester Airport Group, Rolls Royce, Shell and UPS.
The Architecture Practice is a key, lead design function within Industry with growing teams to support its workload.
